Establishing chunck dependencies, simplifying and abstracting code.
- still need to fix up Allen MCMC convergence when underlying model is Myers 10:18 am 2013/05/22

Clean code for complicated scripts
Pseudo-code somewhat captured by the chuncks. Ideal would be:
- Define models
- Define parameters
- Simulate data
- Estimate MLE
- Estimate under GPP
- Allen MCMC
- Ricker MCMC
- Myers MCMC
- Determine optimal policy for each…
A preponderance of preprint servers
Having sent in my review for IEE, do I also post it on the peerJ preprint? File each complaint or suggestion as issue on the paper’s Github repository? Post a comment on the corresponding author’s blogpost on the paper? In my own online notebook? Oh, the reviewer’s plight! From review-recognition poverty to an embarassment of riches!

Are unreasonably harsh reviews retarding the pace of coral reef science? I applaud the spirit of this piece. When I saw the article, Bruno et al. (2013) appear on PeerJ last week I thought to myself, “Ooh, looks like controversial stuff! Bravo for using a preprint server,” so it is quite delightful to read the back story and confirm my guess. Though I am a proponent of open peer review, I find the practice of posting anonymous peer reviews a bit ethically murky still.

Why people don’t use WADL Basically we can accomplish structure much better by having well-defined media types. We can define the schema of the json or xml file we return, 1 and then the application knows what to expect and what it can do with the data. This is far more useful than just having a programmatic version of the API calls in the native language (“client objects”). Seems like REST was supposed to make such things obsolete, and to make deploying the API far simpler than it was in SOAP (which provides WSDL).
which basically means that responses from the server will be documents that include URIs to everything you can do next
hmm, a powerful idea.

yes, JSON has schemas too. wow.↩
